How can I have a true relationship with my friends?
Without a doubt, you may face arguments with your friends.
These are some tips that may help you to overcome tricky situations.
- Step back, if it doesn’t concern something important. When you are angry, count until 10 and take some deep breaths. Then, approach your friend and discuss calmly with him/her. If he/or she ignores you, it is maybe the time to look for a new “buddy”.
- When things get more serious and you are sure that you are right, express yourself freely without any exaggerations. This is going to help your friend to improve as a person and to understand at the same time that he/she was wrong. If the friendship is true, it will have a future.
- Under (any) other cases, when you are not sure for example if you are right or wrong follow the first method explained above and try not to overreact.
- If you know that your friend is on the right side, apologize to him/her.
